Psy’s “Gentleman” Gets Banned For Stupid Reasons

psy

Psy’s newest music video, “Gentleman” has already broken Youtube record by getting 147 million viewers in the short time it has been online, but it looks like the people behind the South Korean state-run network, KBS aren’t one of those millions who liked it. The video has been banned from airing on their network.

Now at this point you’re probably asking yourselves, “why they would ban the video?” Turns out that the part where Psy knocks over a traffic cone is considered “destruction of property” and that violates KBS’ broadcasting standards.

But no matter how ridiculous this guideline sounds, apparently the network takes destruction of property very serious because this isn’t even the first time they have used the same reason to yank a video off of TV; they have done the same thing two times before.

Until then, enjoy Psy destroying some property in the video for “Gentleman.”
